Samsung has announced the launch of a new series of QLED smart TVs – the QT67 line – in its domestic market in South Korea. What sets these new models apart from other Smart TVs already in the portfolio is energy efficiency, which is first rate class. Literally.
The new QT67 models are the first Samsung QLEDs to achieve the first class energy efficiency rating. The South Korean company made televisions with the same rating, but they did not have the same image quality as QLED panels.
The better the energy efficiency, the more accessible these monitors will have power. Of course, this not only means that you will have to pay less for your monthly electricity bills, but it will also be saving the planet, one package at a time. In fact, energy efficiency is so good that in South Korea, at the moment, anyone who buys the new models will be rewarded with a 10% refund per person from Korea Energy Management Corporation. So you will not only save while running the new Smart TV, but you will also save at checkout.
The energy-conscious QT67 QLED series from Samsung is available in six sizes. These start from 43 inches and max out at 85 inches. Between these two extremes are the 50, 55, 65 and 75 inch panels. The 43-inch QT67 QLED TV costs KRW 990,000 (about £ 670), while the first-line 85-inch TV costs R $ 5,490,000 (an increase of £ 3,718).
It is not yet known when these efficient Smart TVs will arrive in the UK, so there is plenty of time to save.
Speaking about the launch, Jong-Seok Chu, vice president of the Electronics Video Display Business Unit, said: “Samsung TV is trying to offer significant value to consumers, in addition to image quality, as recently launched eco-packages and safety certifications. for vision protection. It will also contribute to energy savings ".
For those who don't know, QLED stands for Quantum-Emitting Light Diode. In short, QLED panels work in the same way as standard LED TVs – meaning that there is a backlight created from hundreds or thousands of LEDs that illuminate individual pixels. QLED enhances the standard LED by employing nanoparticles – known as quantum dots – to overload the brightness and color of these individual pixels. The result is more vibrant colors.
However, QLEDs cannot produce the same level of inked blacks as more expensive OLED TVs. This is because OLED panels – or organic light-emitting diode – do not use a uniform backlight. Instead, each individual pixel is an LED that can be turned on and off to create color or complete darkness.
By turning off the LEDs completely, OLED prevents light pollution from the backlight that makes things look a little gray on LED TVs. It is also the reason why smartphones and tablets with OLED panels can save battery life using applications with mostly black user interfaces.
